Information Packet
The Housing and Meal Plan Information Packet provides important information, guidelines, and rules about on-campus housing and meals at the residence halls at CSU Monterey Bay, as well as information on the opening day orientation and the first day check-in schedule.


Register for Housing
After you've reviewed this web page and read the Housing and Meal Plan Information Packet, you can sign up for on-campus housing and meals here.

Parking on Campus

All participants will be emailed instructions for purchasing a parking permit, which you may buy online or during check-in. The cost is $4 per day or $36 for the entire summer. ONLY CASH AND CHECKS are accepted for parking permit purchase at check-in; we are sorry we cannot accept credit cards for parking. Checks should be made payable to CSU Monterey Bay.

On-Campus Housing

CSU Summer Arts participants will be housed on the CSU Monterey Bay main campus in Manzanita, Asilomar and Willet Halls. These buildings are within five minutes walking distance to classrooms and facilities. The rooms are single through triple occupancy, and each room has its own bathroom.

It is possible to request the roommate(s) of your choice, and rooms where all participants agree to live together may be mixed-gender. For participants who do not specify a roommate, rooms will be booked with men and women in separate rooms.

**Linens are NOT provided** You will need to bring your own bedding, pillow and towels.

There is free on-site laundry in each building, but detergent is not provided.


ALL ON-CAMPUS HOUSING INCLUDES A MEAL PLAN. The meal plan provides a wide variety menu, including many vegetarian options, three meals per day. It is not possible to purchase a meal plan without staying on campus, but single meals will be available for purchase at the Dining Commons.
